#Kanishka I was, the greatest, and certainly the most famous, of the #Kushan kings.
He is known, from the combined testimony of the literary, epigraphic, and numismatic sources, to have ruled over an extensive dominion extending from Bihar in the east to #Khorasan
@atalbrave
in the west, and from #Khotan in the north to, perhaps, #Konkan in the south.
The dates and findspots of some of the inscriptions of #Kanishka I are interesting:
#Kosam inscription dated year 2,
#Sarnath inscription dated year 3,
#Mathur¹ inscription dated year 4,
#Suivihar inscription dated year 11, and
#Manikiala inscription dated year 18.

North #Kokan Forecast from 10 to 13 Aug

Increase in #Rain activity expected but this time it will be of much less rains than last 3-6th hyper active spell for coastal area like #Mumbai… As Bay system is much weaker and may track along monsoon axis i.e from East MP to UP, Delhi
(1/2) As offshore #trough may not be much strong for very heavy rains. So in my opinion gradual rise in spells from Mon with bit more increasing toward Wed-Thurs possible.

#MumbaiRains #mumbairain #Konkan #Maharashtra #WeatherUpdate #WeatherForecast #analysis #Amateurforecast
(1/3)At coastal areas of #Raigad,#Mumbai will be cloudy with occasional spell of #Rains with some spells may be heavy in it but may not enough to bring century in 24 hr period so 4 days total may be around 150-300 mm. Though in that N & NE #Mumbai belt may get bit more. #forecast
